medockity grows. >> if things are so good out of washington d.c. and hear it out of the obama administration on the recovery. how come 47 million americans are on food stamps and the number that we spend on food stamps tripled under obama's watch? >> look, i agree with you. there is no recovery that we can measure here and you can point to how many people are out of work and lost their homes and on food stamps. we need to change our policy and invest and then you cash in. that's the way it works. we need to invest in america first. china is doing it. china's unemployment is 4.9 percent . ours is double that . china is investing with us. the money we pay to borrow for war. >> tracey. >> i believe we should invest but i don't want the government to do it. unemployment is up because of the uncertainty out of washington. companies don't want to expand. get the government out of the way, everything will get back to normal. >> tracey is right. you could see a temporarily sell off in the stock market. it is down from all-time highs because the market knows more medocre, the government will step in

, however, president obama continues to make overtures towards bringing americans together and recently sought to do this in the inaugural address. the critics say this speech was too liberal and fell far short of unifying, we the people. what's your perspective on this? >> kelly, it's one thing to make a speech, but you will know them by their fruits. let's go to the fiscal cliff negotiations. as i said before, when boehner offered raising taxes on people who make 1 million and above, that was nancy pelosi's proposal. and before that, he brought things to the table that came from the president's own debt commission and the president said no, no, no, my way or the highway. and that's not how you cut deals. so, by saying that it's not his fault altogether, yes, republicans do have some blame. when one of our leaders say we're going to make sure that president obama is a one-termer that's not how you lead, but now it's time for both of them to come together. this is supposed to be the transparency president, he hasn't been that transparent. >> kelly: right you are about that. he does have
to be having more fun on inauguration day than vice president joe biden. as he and president obama begin their second term, joe biden talked about their role. >> reporter: if there is an odd couple in american politics, it is president obama and joe biden. >> what made it work, if you go back to the days when we were competing for the nomination. all the debates we had, the only two people that didn't disagree on any subject were president obama and joe biden. so when we got into this deal we didn't have what other administrations had where the vice president and president had a different take on the major issues of the day, we were totally sympatico. and what developed and made it easier, it went from working with each other for a friendship. we actually had built trust. >> you disagreed with the president over policy, and you know how to read him pretty well. so how can you tell when you have done something that he doesn't like or that makes him angry? >> oh, that is easy, that is easy. we made a deal early on, when one of us were dissatisfied, we just flat told the other person. and s
the american -- obama pushes the envelope be on for the american people are comfortable, it could give us opportunities. >> these things the inaugural went too far? >> bill clinton saw that in 1994. the republicans all that in 2006 where the new governor of indiana, if republicans are going to act like democrats and do all of that spending, voters are going to hire the professional. in 2010, the extremism of the first two years. i would like to back to the original question. i stand in a small circle -- circle of conservatives who said obama had significant advantages. the reason i say that is because i'm a professional pollster. would like to learn from this past cycle. the fundamentals of the race never shifted. in the last 100 years, only one incumbent president standing for reelection was defeated when not challenged by his own party. the only president in 100 years who lost his bid for reelection and had not been challenged was herbert hoover when he lost to fdr. people tend to be very pro- incumbent. they did not like to rock the boat politically unless given a reason. how many more

[applause] >> well thank you mayor lee and let me just say as the federal transit administrator it's great to be in a federal transit city. as many people know a rail connection was promised to the people of union square and chinatown going on two decades. they made that promise because this quarter is the most densely populated quarter in the entire western united states that doesn't have an adequate rail connection and that promise was made because we have the opportunity here to cut the commute for tens of thousands of people everyday in half by this investment. the vast majority of the people don't own a car. they depend on transit. well today through p
, allowing tax rates to remain low without running head-long into the american people and argument that bill clinton -- president obama seems to prevail on in the election about the role of government. so it's going to get harder for republicans too. remember, paul ryan budget that was so productive on medicare pushed all of the cuts out ten years in the future. now, in order to get the votes to allow the debt ceiling to be raised three months, speaker boehner promised his members the opportunity to vote on a budget that would be balanced within ten years. you can't tell people between 55 and 65, don't listen to this anyway. cure not going to be affected by this. if you balance the budget in ten years. so they're their challenge in winning over americans to the vision of smaller government and practical way is getting tougher. gwen: when you see something like the senator from georgia who says today he's not going to run. he said nothing to do with the fact he split had tea party challenge coming up. but people like that, mitch mcconnell, senate minority leader, getting a little nervous. >>

and this is what you're going to get and you know, it's hard to feel sorry for the american people on this issue when you put them back into the presidency barack obama, who ignored, ignored his own deficit panel on recommendations. on the other thing, as a tactical matter, the republicans punting, i think it's a smart thing. you know, i think if they're going to really go to battle on this thing, they've got to get their acts together and have a game plan. because i'm telling you-- >> get their ax-- >> and if we default, this country is going to go through some major, major issues, and government's going to stop working and that's going to affect a lot of people. and we have not been through, when two-thirds of the federal government has shut down. >> adam, adam, this is it, charlie put it it in a nutshell, the scare tactic, that we're obligated to this mountain of debt until it falls on top of us, if that's the only route we have. >> we are, but let me try put this in perspective. i absolutely agree with you, charles, politicians should be prepared to lose their jobs on major issues. there com

the election in ohio back in 2004 through voter fraud, including a majority of african-americans. about the same number of republicans, 36%, think obama's supporters did the same thing to win last november, although there was no evidence of any cheating or anything, even a machine foul up. think back to 9/11. more than a third of democrats are part of the truther crowd, people who believe president bush knew about the attacks before they happened, as do nearly 60% of african-americans. the difference in the parties is the knowledge base. republicans who know more about the news are actually more likely to believe conspiracy theories fueled by right wing media like fox. dan cassino is a political science professor at fairleigh dickinson university. and radio broadcaster michael smerconish. michael, you brought this to our attention. i want to get you as a generalist like me, what do you think this told you that surprised you, this poll? >> well, it reinforced what i have suspected all along, which is that the business model at the far right is predicated on fear. that they scare the crap

message to the world. president obama and every one of us here knows that american foreign policy is not defined by drones and deployment alone. we cannot allow the extraordinary good that we do to save in change lives to be eclipsed entirely by the role that we have had to play since september 11. a role that was thrust upon us. american foreign-policy is defined by food security, energy security, monetary assistance, the fight against disease and the push for development, as much as it is by any single counterterrorism initiative. and it must be. it is defined by leadership. speaking out for the prisoners in north korea or millions of refugees in displaced persons or victims of human trafficking. it is defined by keeping faith with all of our troops who sacrificed to secure afghanistan. america lives up to her values when we give voice to the voiceless. i share with the president the conviction that it is equally imperative that we assert a new role in the world of increasing failed and failing states. burgeoning populations of young people hungry for jobs, opportunity, individu
